Asus Eee PC

You know that a product is a success when after-market parts and services start to become available. The Asus Eee PC is the latest to see such a trend. While tremendously successful, the Eee PC is not without its limitations, namely a small keyboard, limited storage capacity and limited connectivity options.

One popular option is to add a touchscreen display and Windows XP Tablet edition to add handwriting capability to the device. In Taiwan, the modification only costs about NT$2000 (or just over USD$60).
